[rspec-users] ordering dependency in tests?

I'm baffled. If I do:
$ bundle exec ruby -S rspec --tty A_spec.rb
$ bundle exec ruby -S rspec --tty B_spec.rb
I get no errors. But then if I do:
$ bundle exec ruby -S rspec --tty A_spec.rb B_spec.rb
I get an error on B_spec. And if I reverse the order:
$ bundle exec ruby -S rspec --tty B_spec.rb A_spec.rb
I get an entirely different error on A_spec. I swear that I'm not doing
any before(:all) anywhere, but clearly there's some state that is
persisting between the two spec files. I've tried inserting
$stderr.puts() messages to gain some insight as to what's happening, but
they seem to be suppressed (is that expected?).
So: any ideas of gotchas to look out for?
In the meantime, I'm going to start commenting out blocks of tests in
A_spec and see when B_spec stops failing.
